Smoke on! Powerful and smoky departure by this 747 as it takes off on a long flight to Hong Kong. In the back you can see a BA 777 about to touchdown and much farther behind it the faint lights of an A-320. Meanwhile some aircraft are waiting to line up.

Awesome shot Ivan, pure, unadulterated power! This shot captures the "heavy" appendage to the callsign well, just look at the wings bearing that load. 5* -Jason

It's a very unique angle that really gives a different look at the 747.

I'd expect that kind of smoke trail out of 707! There must be lots of miles on this planes.

The flight must have been delayed because it sure doesn't look like midday to me.
